Let us have a look at the top fantasy picks for IND W vs AUS W Dream11 Prediction team, probable playing XI’s, head to head record, pitch report and the favourites to win the match.
The women in Blue had a devastating ODI series where they failed to win a solitary match despite being in control of the game in the 1st and 2nd ODI’s. In the third and final ODI they lost due to the lack of intent and game awareness. It is a tough pill to swallow for the teams new head coach Amol Mazumdar.
It is time for India women to regroup and focus on the 1st T20I match on Friday. A format where India Women are equally dominant as the Australian Women. Shafali Verma who was benched in the 2nd and 3rd ODI will be back in the playing XI. Left arm spinner Saika Ishaque might feature in todays game. Smriti Mandhana, Deepti Sharma, Jemimah Rodrigues and Harmanpreet Kaur will have huge chip on their shoulders in the series against the mighty Australians.
On the other hand, Australia Women after the loss in the test match, bounced back with a 3-0 ODI series win. The Aussies have been relentless with both bat & ball. Alyssa Healy’s return to form in the final ODI will further boast the batting lineup of Australia.
The major concern for them has been their spinners. Alana King is yet to make an impact on the tour and she might not feature in the playing XI today. It is intresting to see who will open the innings alongside Healy in the first T20I. Overall Australia Women has a good record against the home team and they will back themselves to start on a winning note.
